Hello Everyone! 

Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter!

Tuesday, 22 December 2015

Why hello everyone! 


I just wanted to start off by apologizing for leaving unannounced once again. Like last year, I couldn't keep up with blogmas!! There has been lots of things happening in my family at the moment, and I had to finish all my work before the holidays started, so I just couldn't find the time to post anything. 


I figured I would just post whenever I feel like it until 2016, so that I can get back into a decent schedule as the new year begins to get a fresh start. We can talk more about that later...

ONE OK ROCK in London 2015! (Blogmas Day 9 and 10!)

Hello Everyone! This post is coming at you all a little late (really late lmao) for more reasons than one but no matter, IT'S HERE! 


Tuesday, 8 December 2015

Hello Everyone! I have a lush haul to show you all! 
In my last post I mentioned going to lush and well, here is what I got! 

As you all know, I adore lush products so I took two trips to Lush in the past week to stock up on my stash since I'm all out of the Summer collection and I'm so happy with all the things I got! I'm almost certain that all of the products I've gotten are part of the Christmas line except from the Soft Coeur Massage Bar, so they're all still available in stores now! Here is a rundown of what I bought!

Howdy y'all!

Two new family members! (Blogmas Day 5)

Hello there! How's your day been so far? 
Today, the Kardashian/West family welcomed a new member to the family, Kim gave birth to a little boy! When I heard about it I was so happy haha, I can't wait for it to be shown on Season 1 or early Season 12 of KUWTK (which will definitely happen lol). 
They weren't the only people to welcome someone new to their family..

Blogmas: A little mistake (Day 1-3)

Wednesday, 2 December 2015

Wow, so this isn't a good start to Blogmas is it? 

Unfortunately, my posts haven't saved as they were supposed to and so I've lost the blogmas posts that should have been scheduled to post. I'm really sorry about that! 

I wont lie, I'm a little upset lol. I really enjoyed writing those posts but I feel like if I was to write them all over again, it wouldn't be as enthusiastic as the original so I decided not to remake them. 

I'm going to do a little Christmas Tag to make up for the lost posts, so please enjoy!

Hi everyone! 
It's been a while hasn't it? 
It's also been a while since I've said that, hasn't it? 

Today's post is just going to be a quick update to let you all know what's been going on lately! This will be in a blog format, kinda like my first few blog posts on this blog! So, I hope you enjoy it! 

♡ October MCM Expo Haul 2015! ♡

Sunday, 25 October 2015

Hi Everyone! How has your weekend been? Here in the UK we have officially started our half term meaning we have a whole week off college/school/uni etc, and I kicked off my half term by attending the London MCM Expo (which I literally just got back from)!

Hi everyone! How are you all doing today? 

I had my Formal Assessment for my Fashion course, which is when my teachers give me a predicted final grade. These grades aren't final and can be changed depending on how well we do throughout the course. My current teacher set me a predicted grade of a B which I'm super happy about because this means I'm working on a B grade and can only improve from here! I've gotta work a lot harder though so please bare with my delayed posts lol...

Back to School Series 2015: Whats in My School Bag?

Sunday, 18 October 2015

*Note: I was supposed to get this uploaded by 7:30pm (GMT) on thursday as promised but It seems I didn't schedule it like I thought it did lol. Oh well, here it is, enjoy!

Hi everyone!
As you can see, I just remembered that I didn't complete the last two posts for my 5 part back to school series.. and I started college almost 2 months ago.... HAHA! Let's pretend we're back in September okay?

Missed the last Back to School posts?

Today I've been busy sorting out my fashion coursework! We have a half point deadline which is next money so I've been working hard these last few weeks to get the best results because it will be my predicted grade! Because I have a lot of materials to bring into college to get my work done, I have to keep organized and carry multiple bags which can get a little tiring when you have to carry everything for 5 days a week.

TAG | I ♡ Fall

Sunday, 11 October 2015

Hi everyone! How have you all been doing?! October has been a hectic month for me so it's taken a while for me to get my head around things and figure things out. I've just finished watching the Princess Dairies 2 (one of my favorite Disney films) and it's made me realize that, the life of a princess is always hard, but we get through it eventually and everything turns out okay in the end. So I took that as a moral of this week so that I can persevere and keep motivated for the next week ahead.

Hello everyone! How has you month been? I honestly cannot believe it's already October!! I love October for 3 reasons. 1) It's the "official" beginning of Autumn, 2) It's my birthday month (28th) and, 3) IT'S THE MONTH OF HALLOWEEN! I'm so glad this month has begun, it brings me nothing but happiness so I can't wait to see what this month has to hold for me! 

☆ Minae's Adventures - Gallery/Museum Visits ☆

Sunday, 27 September 2015

Hello everyone! I hope you've all had a good week! I've finally gotten into the swing of things in college and have figured out my time table and schedules pretty well. Revision and homework is constantly on my mind these days, the moment I get out of my last lesson of the day I'm either at the library working, in the art studios working, or at home working! Work work work! My motto for this year is 'Work Hard, Play hard.', so I make sure to do all the work before resting. So far it's going well. I've challenged myself to finish work before 7pm, because that's when I usually have dinner, and that's when all the good tv shows start to run lol.

For my fashion & textiles (art) course, I have to go to multiple galleries and do artist research for my portfolio to get inspiration for my work, as well as bumping up my grade for doing extra curriculum activities outside of college lol. Me and my friend Irina (who does a course in Fine Art) decided to take a trip down to South Kensington, the home of Museums and Galleries in London, to explore what each exhibition had to offer. Got up in the crack of dawn and met each other around 9am to get there before the crowds. We went to to Victoria and Albert Museum first for my work, then to The Science Museum for Irina's. We also went to Saatchi Gallery for London Fashion Week, and then took a 20 minute walk to The National Gallery in Trafalgar Square.

Autumn Goals for 2015

Tuesday, 22 September 2015

Hi everyone!! 
It's been an extremely busy week for me, since I "officially" started college a week ago my schedule and time keeping has gone off the rails. I've had little to no time to make a blog post and I didn't really feel like making a half-assed post that had no thought or effort put into it just to keep my blog going lol.

So hi there everyone! 
How has your weekend been? And how is your weekday going so far?! 

I've only just started going back to college (I know, my college does things really late lmao) so I've been settling into my second year. It's only been two days and they have already given me 3 pieces of homework to do, I think that's a little crazy haha! 

Since I updated my blog layout I've gotten a ton of questions on how to do certain things so I decided to move my original planned post to Thursday and get this post out for you guys as soon as possible.

☆ Minae's Adventures - Hyper Japan 2015 (3/3) ☆

Thursday, 10 September 2015

Hello Everyone! 
How has your week been so far? I'm still extremely bored and waiting for the time I go back to college, I've got no Idea why my college is starting so late haha. 

You've probably already noticed but I CHANGED MY BLOG LAYOUT! 
I'm so so happy with this layout. The last layout I had was like that for 2 years now and I love it a lot (I backed it up haha). I've gone through lots of moments that have made me grow as a person, and I decided that I wanted to change up my life a little, making new starts, trying out new things etc. One of the things I wanted to do was change the layout of my blog so here we are! Do you like it? 

Anyway, let's get on with this post! 

Hyper Japan 2015 (Part 3/3) - Hyper HAUL!

♥ Minae's Life | The busy month of August ♥

Tuesday, 8 September 2015

Hi there everyone! 
I hope you're all having a good week~ All my friends are back in college now but I don't go back until next week, so I'm taking this week as a part Relaxation, part College Recap so that I can regenerate like the robot I am, and have a head start in what I'm going to be learning in each subject! 

This whole month has been crazy for me, while I didn't get to go on holiday like a lot of my friends did, I've done lots of things over the last few weeks here in London and I've experienced a few others for the first time! 

Before I begin I just wanted to address a problem I've been having with my blog recently. I'm still not able to reply to certain comments! I don't know why, but some comments show the "reply" button and others don't, so please know that if I don't reply to your comment it's not me ignoring you, I've read it and appreciate you reading my blog! I'm still trying to figure it out so please bare with me! <3 

So here is what I've been up too~!

Saturday, 5 September 2015

Hello All! 
I found my camera so let's just get straight to it! 

I'm posting this just before going to my aunts house to hang out with my family~ 
I didn't really enjoy anything from July enough to call it a favorite, which is why I decided to skip doing a favorites for that month, but during August I started liking a few things a lot more so here they are!

Monday, 31 August 2015


This is a post that I should have gotten out a few days ago but as you all know, or should know if you follow my twitter, due to my internet provider going awol on me, I haven't had decent internet connection for the last few days, meaning I couldn't post anything lmao. But I'm here now, and I've got lots to post about so let's quickly get too it! 

Today was the last day of AUGUST which marks the end of the summer holidays for most of the people in the UK. I don't have to go back to college until the 14th but most of my friends go back this week or the next, and everyone is preparing for the autumn season, to put it simply, summer is over! 

TAG | The 'Love ♡ Hate' Tag

Tuesday, 25 August 2015

Hi everyone! I hope you're all having fun this week! From next week onward, my friends will go back to college/uni one by one until it's only me left (since my college is the last one to start up). For a lot of us in the UK, this will be the last official "Summer" week, so we're gonna make the most of it! 

I decided to take a "break" from the Back to School 2015 series because...

Last week I was nominated by the lovely Alyss to do this TAG, thank you so much <3

Back to School Series 2015: Minae's Declassified School Survival Guide!

Sunday, 23 August 2015

How are you all doing today? I hope you're enjoying your Sunday~! 
I'm back with yet another Back to School post. Yes I'm churning these out daily and I'm really pleased about it! 

This is a post that I've been wanting to do for a while now, so what a better time than to do it now while I'm my Back to School series is running! To be honest though, I think a lot of things on this list can be taken as tips for going to Uni and to Work as well, not just High School and College, since most of the tips are really easy to do and doesn't take much effort at all! 

Back to School Series 2015: ♡ Minae's Wishlist ♡

Saturday, 22 August 2015

Hi Everyone! I'm back with the second part of my Back to School series! 
To tell you the truth, I was going to call this series BTS (Back To School), but then I remembered that the KPOP group BTS would be the first thing people think of if I made it like that haha~ 
Anyway, School/College is just TWO WEEKS AWAY!!
I know, it's a struggle, but we've got to make sure that we're prepared to start up our schedule again. One thing that I always tell myself to do early but never follow through with is collecting all of my Back To School supplies. I always leave it until the last few days and start stressing out because I can't find any of the things I need to buy.

Back to School Series 2015: 10 Things You should know before starting college

Friday, 21 August 2015

I'm back again! How have you all been doing?

Today was a very important day for 16 year old's in the UK today, they received their GCSE results! It's been exactly one year since I received mine and a lot has changed! For those of you who don't know, GCSE's are basically Exams that high school (or what we call, secondary) students have to take, and the results determine whether you can go onto College or Sixth form. Last week, I received my AS level results, so I want to give the year below me some tips to take onto college. Sixth form is the "bridge" between High School and College, incorporating both teaching styles into one place. In most Sixth Forms and Colleges, we take things called A Levels, which are qualifications that help you get a degree or a job. They're usually separated into two years, AS in the first year, and A2 in the next.

Saturday, 15 August 2015

Hi guys! How have you all been this week?! 
I've been incredibly busy sorting out my life these last few days, but I made time to post the second part of my Hyper Japan 2015 series! I hope you enjoy it! 

Hyper Japan 2015 (Part 1/3) - Hyper Kawaii, Culture and LIVE 
Hyper Japan 2015 (Part 2/3) - Meet and Greet sessions!
Hyper Japan 2015 (Part 3/3) - Hyper HAUL!

Hyper Meet & Greet

This was probably the most nerve wrecking and yet most exciting part of the whole event for me! I was so terrified of meeting all of the artists I saw, but at the same I knew that If it didn't I would regret it for the rest of my life!! I'm so glad I did though, I was able to meet so many great artists!

♥ TAG | Top 10 Anime Male Characters (C/W Alluring Alyss) ♥

Tuesday, 11 August 2015

Hi my sweet potatoes! How are you all enjoying this week? Two days from now, I'll be receiving my A Level results! I'm not going to lie, I'm worried about the results even though I'm 100% sure I've failed (lol), but I tried my best with revising at I time when I was at my lowest, so whatever the outcome, I can console in the fact that the grades I get isn't due to me being lazy for once.

Look at me, already accepting defeat!

A few weeks ago I announced that I would be having a collaboration series with the amazing Alluring Alyss, based around everything to do with Anime! Today I bring to you our next tag.. Since our first one was a top 10 list for favorite anime female characters, we wen't with "Top 10 Anime Male Characters" this time~! This one was a lot harder for me to decide on, because a lot of the time I just gush about how adorable/hot/cute anime guys are, and it takes a lot for characters to have a legit impact on me!
Before reading my list, you should check out Alluring Alyss' top 10 list here first!
Without further ado, here is my top 10 Anime Male Characters~!

Sunday, 9 August 2015

Hello everyone! 

Alright, Time for some giggles.. Almost a year ago, I went to the kpop group U-KISS' concert here in London, and I wrote up a blog post about it.. What I didn't realize was that I never actually published the post I made... Flash forward a ton of months later, and here I am about to post my experience! 
Sorry I only realized now, but without further ado, here is the post!

Friday, 7 August 2015

Hello there! How are you all doing today? 
Im going to dive straight into this post because it's almost a month overdue! No excuses this time, I've just been too lazy to edit the photos and write this post up until now! But, now I'm here, with 3 days worth of photo's and news to talk about, and there's a lot to go through!! 
Because of this, I'm going to split this post into three, so please look out for the next posts to come! 

Hyper Japan 2015 (Part 1/3) - Hyper Kawai, Culture and LIVE 
Hyper Japan 2015 (Part 2/3) - Meet and Greet sessions!

So let's get to it!

On the 10th of July of this year, I went to the annual Japanese festival called Hyper Japan, which took place in the O2 Arena this year! Instead of going for one or two days, I decided to get a weekend ticket and go all three days! I've never done this for Hyper Japan before, so I was really excited to see how this weekend would turn out! There was so much to see and lots of things to do, so I was entertained the whole weekend!

Sunday, 2 August 2015

Hi everyone~! I'm back!! 
I hope you're all enjoying your summer! It's already august which means some of you have already gone back to school/college/uni!! Here in the UK, I don't need to go back until the second week of September when my course starts up again, so I've still got a month to relax! 

Today's post will be a quick catch up, for me to tell you all why I went AWOL in a little more detail, and to let you guys know what I've been up to, so for today you all get to be a little nosey with my permission! xD

MUSIC | My Soundcloud Playlist ♥

Wednesday, 22 July 2015

Hi everyone, I hope you're all enjoying your week!
If you follow my twitter, you would know that I'm still recovering from my surgeries, which means that I've pretty much been sitting around all week trying to heal quickly under my doctors orders lol. It's giving me time to watch lots of anime and netflix, read a book or listen to music while trying to not move much haha!

One of the things that I've been doing is searching up on a lot of new artists on Soundcloud! I don't really have a certain taste in music, one day I could be listening to SHINee, the next day I'll be listening to Nicki Minaj or Morning Musume! What I love to see the most is artists who create mixtapes on soundcloud remixing their own songs or other artists, so today I'm going to be showing you all a few of the tracks that I've been loving lately!

Wednesday, 15 July 2015

Hi everyone! Hope you are enjoying the week! For the last day or two I've been recovering from the hectic weekend I just had. As you all know, I went to Hyper Japan for the whole weekend and I had the greatest time there! I saw so many friends and met a ton of idols (DEMPAGUMI.INC!), It was just a crazy time, honestly. I'll be writing up a few blog posts about the event throughout next week, so look out for them! 

Today I am happy to announce that I have a new blog project to share with you all! As of this post, I will be collaborating with Alluring Alyss to talk about all things anime, and today's post will be based on our Top 10 Anime Waifus! This is my first collaboration project with another blogger so I'm super excited to be sharing this with you guys! I hope you all enjoy this post along with all the posts to come~!

Minae's Guide to Hyper Japan ♥

Tuesday, 7 July 2015

Hi everyone! 
How is your week going? Is the weather good in your country right now? 
Here in the UK, we're now experiencing "off" weather, where it's sunny one second, and raining the next! Usually in this condition we would see rainbows, but it's so cloudy that there's none in the sky~!

Hyper Japan is around the corner with only a few days left until the event! I'm extremely excited! 
For those of you who don't know, Hyper Japan is an annual event that celebrates all things Japanese including food, art, culture, fashion, anime and video games, which runs on the last weekend of July and occasionally the end of November for a Christmas market.
I've been to Hyper Japan twice now, and it's a lot different to other similar conventions in the UK such as MCM Expo or London Anime and Comic Con so I want to talk about the event during this post, and give a few tips on what to expect when going there, what to bring with you, and important things to remember while you're there! 

So let's get to it! 


Monthly Favorites (June 2015)

Thursday, 2 July 2015

Hello everyone! We are already half way through the year!! I can't believe it's gone this quickly. I never really noticed it until I finished my first year at college. How are you all finding this year? I've had lots of ups and downs but so far, it's much better than the previous years..
It's been crazy hot these last few weeks here in the UK, London especially. Yesterday we saw 38 degrees which is the highest it's ever been, surpassing the last hottest day here which was 9 years ago! 9 years ago I was learning my 9 times tables!! It's crazy how hot its gotten. I have to leave my fan on during the night because it's 20 degrees all night and I can't stand the thought of leaving the windows open and allowing bugs to come into my room haha. Oops I'm rambling.. 

♡ Kami 7 Series ♡ Overrated Anime that I love

Tuesday, 30 June 2015

(That means "Hello" or "Ohayo") 
As you can see, I'm taking this moment to be the trashy weeb that I am! HAHA! 

It's been a while since my last Kami7 post, so I'm back with another one, and it's ANIME THEMED! For some reason, my last Anime themed Kami 7 series post got really popular, and it's still one of my top posts! A lot of people requested another one, so here we are! 

For my new readers, the Kami 7 series is a series of posts where I rank my top 7 (Kami 7 meaning "Top 7" or "God 7", something which is mainly used by Wota for the 48 group AKB48.) of various things, whether its Anime, Games, Films, Makeup, TV Shows, you name it! 

This will be based on the Top 7 OVERRATED Anime that I just so happen to love!

MCM Expo Haul (May 2015)!

Saturday, 13 June 2015

(It's been a while!)

A few weeks back, I went to the London MCM Expo! The MCM Expo is a Anime, Gaming, and Comics convention which happens every May and October of each year during the last weekend of those months. I usually go all weekend but due to my exams which were happening around that time, I couldn't spend all weekend there, so I only went on the Sunday!

While I was there, I happened to pick up a lot of cute items, so here are the things I bought!

IDOL | AKB48's 7th Sousenkyo Senbatsu Elections 2015

Thursday, 28 May 2015

Hi there everyone! How have you all been? 
It's that time of year again, where many people around the world have been voting for something, whether its the British Government Election or Eurovision, this month has been filled with voting! 

Although I wasn't able to vote in the UK Gov Election due to me being born a few months too late (It's still frustrating that I have to wait another 5 years to make a vote on something I know about NOW), AKB48's 41st Single Senbatsu Sousenkyo Elections is something I can vote for now!

For those of you who don't know what the heck I'm going on about, The AKB48 Sousenkyo Elections is an annual event that happens in June, where the fans get the chance to vote for who they want to be in the next AKB single (as opposed to management deciding on who will be in the single). All 48 Groups (AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48, SNH48 and NGT48) members are eligible.

Revision Tips, Exams and Future Plans (1/2)

Tuesday, 5 May 2015

Hello Everyone! I hope you're all enjoying this week! April has already come to an end (whoa!) which means that we have fully approached exam season! Some people may have already done their exams, but the majority of people in the UK are still preparing for those hour long exam papers that will but not really dictate the rest of their lives! Ten years ago when I was in primary school, I was handed my first exam, a 20 question maths times tables questionnaire, and was given a timer to for each question. I feared for my life if I couldn't get 15/20 questions right, so my mum bought me some 7+ maths revision books so I could learn what 7 x 8 - 25 was in 10 seconds. Now as a 17 year old, I think I can say that I've become accustomed to the exam process and how to get through it alive.

HAUL | April Spending!

Friday, 17 April 2015

Hello everyone! How was your half term holidays (or spring break if you live in america!!)? I hope you've all had a nice vacation. This April has been pretty hectic for me. Over the past few weeks I've been preparing my fashion coursework and outcomes for that work in time for my fashion examination (next week!). I've also been revising for my other subjects, but I've mostly been focusing on fashion since it's a practical based subject that needs hours of preparation. Luckily during this hectic time, I've found a little break to write up a post that is long overdue.  During my half term I was able to go out and buy a few things, so here is a little run down on what I bought!
